Aromas of mirabelle plum, warm lemons and mango carry through to the palate.
Bright acidity and a notably enlivening finish.
This inaugural Chardonnay release was made from fruit sourced in the Russian River Valley, known for its sunny warm weather, which resulted in a ripe, exuberant fruit character. Initially produced as a family-only vintage, this charming little Chardonnay eventually took its place as a permanent feature in the Palmaz wine portfolio.
Bottled June 2003.
100% barrel fermented.
Aged surlies for 8 months in 50% new French oak.
The crisp style of this wine balances with rich fish dishes such as sole meunière and shrimp quenelles in cream sauce.
